The first Xtreme Gym has opened its doors at 1 Masons Road with help from Redditch property agents John Truslove.
If all goes according to plan Birmingham and Worcester are next on the target list.
“It has gone really well,” said Zoe Evans, co-owner with her son James. “We have loads of people signed up.
“We chose the complex because it was the right size, there are parking spaces – very important in Stratford – it is on a main road and it is near to major businesses. Ben Truslove was very helpful.”
Ben Truslove, a director of John Truslove, said: “The performance of Xtreme Boot Camps is breathtaking and this new venture will give them a platform to reach new heights. I’m sure the competition will feel the burn.”
The gym has been financed from family investment boosted by a crowdfunding appeal. It incorporates a military training area with rigs and ropes. There is a cardio area and weights. In addition it hosts a number of classes including boxercise, Xtreme cycling, circuit training, martial arts for all ages, yoga, pilates and dance.
Created to help people of all ages, abilities and fitness levels, clients come from all walks of life from dentists, local businessmen, students, housewives to sports teams, actors, models, paralympic medalists, TV and radio presenters and celebrities. Its offer got particular profile when the instructors put Miss England contestants through their paces earlier this year.
